Overview

Legends of the Plastic Chairs is a journey into the heart's core. The book begins with an epiphany Curtis experiences on a Hawaiian beach. She masterfully tells the story of her life - without judgment or self-pity - and creates the perfect metaphor for overcoming any kind of dysfunction. The book lays open the author's own tragic childhood abuse and her steady climb back into joyful well-being. Incredibly, Curtis uses humor to look at how we become who we are and how we form distorted judgments of ourselves and each other. This story is ultimately about the indomitable human spirit and the voice within each of us that calls us back to rediscovering the joy of who we really are. Through this voice, Curtis learns that conquering one's emotional scars is not only possible, but even fun. The cast of characters in Curtis' life - a crazy woman, a misogynist, three sisters, a Voice, a church, three children, two ex-husbands, a white-haired old man - and two white plastic chairs - lead her to make a most profound discovery about life.
Legends of the Plastic Chairs will take you on a journey to freedom from your emotional scars, old programming, and destructive self-images.

Being raised the daughter of a mentally ill mother and an abusive alcoholic father wasn¿t easy. Patricia Curtis¿ cleverly named ¿Legends of the Plastic Chairs¿ lays open her tragic childhood rife with abuse and disturbing images from the world of schizophrenia and manic depression. Yet, she masterfully tells her story of growing up the middle child in an extremely dysfunction family without judgment or self-pity, allowing her life to reflect the perfect metaphor for overcoming any type of dysfunction. The book begins with an epiphany Curtis experiences on a Hawaiian beach. Her story unfolds through a highly inventive method of character interplay including a crazy woman, a misogynist, three sisters, a Voice, a church, three children, two ex-husbands, a white-haired old man, and two white plastic chairs. Sequential storyline vignettes hurl the reader non-stop through 204 riveting pages, culminating in a celebration of joy ¿ the victorious return to self. 'Legends of the Plastic Chairs' is a journey into the heart¿s core. It is the story of the indomitable human spirit and the voice within each person that calls us back to rediscovering the joy of who we really are. Through this voice, Curtis shows how conquering one¿s emotional scars is not only possible, it can be fun.
